08:41 AM ET 11.24 | The New York Giants have received some good news, because the Green Bay Packers will reportedly be without star linebacker Clay Matthews on Sunday. However, they have their own injuries to deal with this week, with the major one being the apparent high-ankle sprain to wide receiver Domenik Hixon. The 28-year-old Akron has been injured since Week 10 and is likely out with a Grade 2 high ankle sprain, because he hasn't even practiced off the bye. The fact that the Giants have ruled out Hixon comes as no surprise, and they will once again be rolling with rookie Rueben Randle as the No. 3 wideout. In nine games this season, Hixon has caught 26 passes for 380 yards as a solid deep threat for the Giants. Star running back Ahmad Bradshaw was limited in today's practice and is officially listed on the injury report as probable with a neck injury. The Giants gave him some rest during the last two practices, but Bradshaw will see his carries getting cut into further by Andre Brown and even rookie David Wilson. The Giants seem ready to finally give the explosive back some more carries going forward, and it looks like he will have a chance to shine against the Packers.

Nobody cares about the Giants.

Nobody cares about any NFL team for the most part like they used to. The players don't stick around long enough for for the fans to connect with them, and player movement has all but killed the intense rivalries that used to exist.

I'd like to see Wilson get more carries. Also like to see him hold onto the ball.

I would too, but it appears he does not know his blocking assignments on pass plays. They do not trust him for some reason. Frustrating.

I'm worried about the Giants now.Too many injuries this year, and Eli is losing targets to throw to and a running game to take the defense focus off of him.

Deeper than that so far. Not playing very well on either side of the ball.

IMO Wilson has gotten a bad rap as a fumbler. He;s only fumbled once back in week #1 and has not been given a chance at redemption. He's been doing KO returns and has never fumbled at that position.

The guy is a burner and should be given another opportunity to show his stuff.

Remember my ominous prediction back in pre-season? I don't think even Chico had the hope to pick the Skins in the NFC East. But here they are, knocking on the door, chopping on the beanstalk and waiting for the Giant to fall.
